Perfect Fluidity in Atomic Physics

  title={Perfect Fluidity in Atomic Physics},
  author={Thomas Schaefer},
Experimental results obtained at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) have been interpreted in terms of a strongly interacting quark gluon plasma. The strongly interacting plasma is characterized by “perfect fluidity”, i.e. a ratio of shear viscosity to entropy density that saturates a proposed lower bound. In this contribution we explore the… CONTINUE READING
